Introduction -- Framing and Explaining Affinity Voting -- Coethnic and Racialized Affinity in Canada -- The Importance of Self-Identifi cation -- Ethnic Identity and Voter Behaviour -- The Role of Interests, Ideology, and Policy -- Affinity Voting in Federal Elections
"Identities and Interests offers an entirely new perspective on the role of racial and ethnic identities in Canadian elections. Using a series of experiments, as well as candidate and census data, Randy Besco demonstrates that self-identification matters far more than self-interest, ideology, or policy. The largest minority groups--Chinese and South Asian Canadians--tend to support candidates of their own ethnicity. Yet inter-minority affinity voting also reveals the potential for "rainbow coalitions" and how minorities themselves think in terms of a White/non-White divide. Besco's innovative work has major implications for social movements, issue opinions, fundraising, and political leadership races"-- Provided by publisher
